Today, we're thrilled to announce that we are opening our first office outside of our Seattle headquarters with a new office in Atlanta, GA.
Over the past three years, we've grown our customer base to include Fortune 500 brands, regional titans, and local shippers. As we've expanded nationwide, we've seen dramatic growth in the demand of our customers with east coast shipping, and we are opening an office in Atlanta to better serve our customers and carriers across the country.
Atlanta is a leading global center for supply chain. It has strong representation of Fortune 500 companies as well as regional, thriving businesses, and it's a vital location for freight in the US. We're excited to join supply chain leaders such as UPS, Delta, Home Depot, and Westrock by expanding our presence in the city, and we look forward to making new friends in the freight community.
"As we've grown to support the needs of our customers across the country we've been providing 24/7 support from Convoy's offices in Seattle," said Dan Lewis, CEO. "The amazing Atlanta talent joining our new office will allow us to continue delivering industry-leading service, while giving our customers and carriers greater access to our teams."
The office will be staffed by operations, support, and account management teams focused on supporting both current and new Convoy customers.

Crises can bring out the best in us. It can be hard to believe that when headlines are crowded with toilet paper hoarders or raucous spring breakers under the impression that they're invincible, but it's true. A paper by the University of Delaware's Disaster Research Center found that assumptions about people acting in their own best interest during a crisis are "fundamentally incorrect" and that "human beings…typically rise to the daunting challenges that disasters pose."
